Creativity to me is....

I was catching up on blog reading yesterday and really enjoyed this post on Carol's blog about a creativity quiz.  It's  a short quiz that gives you some insight to your creative style. 

Here's what my answers said:
"Creativity is separate from the real world for you. But it’s a magical world in which you like to immerse yourself. When you’re involved in it, you get the wonderful sensation that there are no limits, that anything is possible. What you are really looking for is harmony — you want to feel you are a part of what you create. Planting flowers, writing poetry, embroidery or putting together a photo album, these are all suited to your sort of quiet creativity. You want to fall in love with what you create. You also think of creativity as a part of you in which you can take refuge and feel protected.  Creativity acts as an ‘encouraging parent — loving, enriching and supportive’. You would love to use your creativity to retreat into a world that is kind and reassuring. For you, being creative means having the chance to become one with what you create, bathe in the glory of it and allow yourself to be taken over by it. This is why you seem more suited to the sort of creativity that calls for gentleness, subtlety, harmony and patience."

I found it pretty amazing to read because harmony and reassurance are 2 things I see myself seeking in life in general, too.  What an artist statement this makes. 
Insight I describe my watercolors as a way of expressing myself.  Through the blending of the fabrics, I create the harmony that I seek in my own life.  It's the way I become one with what I create.

Happy stitching.
